12 of 12, July 2014 edition

My 31st "12 of 12".

While it's most of y'alls Saturday, it's my Friday. Which is good, because I'm tired today and could use a weekend of doing nothing. Which won't happen. But that's another post or twelve. But back to today...

The 12 of 12 challenge was created by Chad Darnell and picked up from a number of random bloggers who then linked back to him and vice versa. Chad stopped doing the 12 of 12 links in December of 2011, but passed the torch to someone else who sadly hasn't been keeping up with it. So as always, I'm giving my shout-out to Blobby of Blobby's Blog as he is the one who inspired me to do it.

All pictures were taken with my iPhone 4S.

10:30 AM: The only grocery in our town. For now. And I'm not a fan. It's dirty, a lot of the food is close to the expiration date, and it's expensive. But on the upside, there was a hot man with a most excellent beard in there this morning. I should have taken a picture of him!

Pic a Day in May: May 30, 2014

I had to run across the street to grab some Coricidin today because my nose is running. And I saw this little guy there while I was shopping. So I had to buy it. Memories of my childhood.

Shrinking...
Shrinking...

Although I miss the toys when they were big and metal.

Pic a Day in May: May 29, 2014

I seem to be eating way to much, and way to late as of late. For example, it's 11pm and I'm cooking Ramen.

Fire burn and cauldron bubble...

Maybe I'm still in winter mode.

Pic a Day in May: May 28, 2014

10 years ago when we moved the salon from Rogers to Bentonville, I lost the small little office I had that I did paperwork in. There wasn't room in the new salon for an office, so I started bringing that all home.

We've been remodeling the salon and tattoo studio the last few months, and we had a little bit of room left over. In which I put an office! Which I "finished" today. At least it's functional.

With that being finished, I started moving all that paperwork up to the salon office tonight.

And now my desk at home looks... naked.

Emptiness...
Emptiness...

Now at least I won't be bringing "everything" home.

And I can start working on remodeling that "office" space into a library.

Pic a Day in May: May 27, 2014

Since the Husbear brought the dog into home, the kittehs have tended to stay upstairs. Mostly in the bathroom. And m has taken up walking around the edge of the tub. Particularly while it's in use.

Delicate balance...
